The Youth Premier League consists of a series of competitions run across December and January for talented male and female cricketers starting at Under-14 and moving through to Under-18s, and has been the stepping stone for not only many elite players but also coaches and managers as well.
The programme is a key component of the talent identification system for male and female youth cricketers. The program has a history of producing elite level players with Peter Siddle, Meg Lanning, James Pattinson, Peter Handscomb and Molly Strano just some of the cricketers who have gone on to represent Australia, Victoria and play in BBL and WBBL.
There are eight metropolitan and eight country regions that are represented in every competition meaning players can participate in representative programs regardless of where they live in Victoria. The region a cricketer represents is based on their residential address, not the location of their club.
